Recently, I read an article written by Chitraraj Upadhyay Bastola who comes across as a man with very narrow views. I dont know whether you guys will agree but heres the highlights;
चौविसै घण्टा जाँड रक्सीले मातेर लठ्ठ हुने कथित आदिबासी/जनजाति भनाउँदाहरुले नेपालको इतिहासमै नपढी त्यसलाई जाँडकै तालमा बङ्ग्याउने प्रयास गरेका छन् । (The ”Aadibasi’s” who drink for days want to rewrite the Nepali history without even knowing the history of Nepal.)
आफनो धर्म, संस्कृति, भाषा नभएका सधै अर्काको धर्म, भाषा, संस्कृति र भेषभुषा चोरेर पैचो लिएर बाँच्ने परजिवि नै मंगोल वर्ग हो । (The Mongols are people who have no real identity, as their religion, culture and language are all taken from others.)
राष्ट्रवादी हुँ भनेर हुङ्कार गर्ने मतवालीहरु आज भारत, सिंगापुर, बेलायतको भाडाका सिपाही बनेका छन् ।(The Matwali’s (Mongols) who call themselves Nationalists are working as civil servants in countries such as India, Singapore and the UK)
नेपालमा आएका मंगोल वर्गका पर्ुखाहरुले तिब्बतमा आफनै सन्तान माथि बलात्कार गर्ने, आफनै सन्तान मार्ने, चोरी डकैती गरेको कारण त्यहाँबाट भगाइएको थियो भन्ने कुरा इतिहासकारहरु बताउँछन् ।(Those Mongols who have come from Tibet are believed to have killed their own families, raped their ‘Santan’ and fled due to their actions)
I have given a weak attempt to translate the texts so please correct me if I am wrong. This is hmm, its angering but we as humans should not be angered by someones stupid remarks. Ask yourself how castist are you? This person of Bahun background has said this but I am sure many people of Mongol background have said as negative things as well so lets not be fuelled by hate. Many Mongols attack the Bahun population whenever the case of Why Nepal has not developed arises. Today I logged on to Sajha.com and went through few of its forums and even in there theres people of Newari caste arguing against other groups. Is this what New Nepal is? Where everyone wants their own state, everyone wants their own rights, now that to me isn’t a country.
Before, the whole caste issue was a bigger problem but with recent times things have progressed forward and we should work TOGETHER to make a better society since our actions today will result in how we educate the people of tommorow.
